CAR ACCIDENTS

A SEVERE INJURY FROM A CAR ACCIDENT WILL DRASTICALLY CHANGE YOUR LIFE

 

If We Take Your Case, We Do So On A Contingent Basis—That Means You Are Not Required To Pay Any Money Upfront And We Get Paid Only If We Are Successful In Getting A Financial Recovery For You

Car accidents happen in and around the Metro-Atlanta Area, as well as in Forsyth and Hall County on a regular basis. Some are just fender-benders, while others can cause serious or catastrophic injuries or even death. If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in a car wreck, you need an experienced attorney to represent your best interests when dealing with the insurance company.

 

Weaver Law Firm knows how hard it can be to deal with all of the paperwork, phone calls, and rejection notices when you're trying to heal from your injuries. Instead of taking on this monumental task yourself, let us handle it.

For nearly twenty years, we have dealt with insurance companies for people all over the state of Georgia, most living in the Forsyth, Hall and Gwinnett area. We have the experience to know what you should expect for fair and full compensation for your injuries, something your insurance company will not tell you. We will fight to get you the money you deserve to cover your medical bills, lost wages and other expenses associated with your accident.

Our lawyers will represent you for these and many other types of injuries from car accidents:

  • Traumatic brain injury

  • Head and neck injuries

  • Back and shoulder injuries

  • Broken bones

  • Lacerations

  • Burns

  • Catastrophic injuries

  • Fatal injuries

 

 

HOW CAN YOU HELP ME AFTER A CAR ACCIDENT?

 

Insurance companies do not want to cover the full cost of an auto accident. Your medical expenses can continue for years. You may not be able to return to your job, or you may never be able to work again. Our job is to make sure the insurance company recognizes all of this and compensates you fairly.

We will work with accident reconstruction experts to determine who was at fault. We will examine all of the evidence carefully so we can prove where the cause of the accident originated. We will consult with your doctors and other medical professionals on your recovery progress and what the potential long-term effects of your injuries may involve.

We will take all of this information and create a clear picture of your accident to present to the insurance company. If they are unwilling to give you fair and full compensation, we will bring your case to court.

TRUCK ACCIDENTS

DON'T LET A TRUCK DRIVER'S NEGLIGENCE RUIN YOUR LIFE.

All truck drivers are required by law to follow driving rules set forth by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). These rules cover how many hours a truck driver can be behind the wheel before taking a break or stopping to sleep, maintenance and repairs for their trucks, and the types of distracting devices allowed in their cabs.

When a truck driver breaks one of these regulations, your life can be at stake, while the truck driver may walk away unscathed. Any accident involving a truck and a car will likely cause severe or catastrophic injury or death to the driver and passengers of the smaller vehicle. This is based solely on the size and mass of the truck hitting the car.

Worse yet, as soon as the truck driver calls the accident in to his or her trucking company, an agent may be sent out to the accident scene to mitigate any damage, including trying to blame you for causing the accident. If you or someone you love has been in a truck accident, you need an experienced lawyer on your side, right away.

At Weaver Law Firm, our attorneys have extensive experience with big truck wrecks in and around Gainesville, Cumming, Gwinnett, North Georgia and the Atlanta Metro area. We have helped many people who have suffered severe injuries recover maximum compensation from trucking companies and their insurance carriers. We can do the same for you.

 

HOW TRUCKING COMPANIES TRY TO PROTECT THEMSELVES

Trucking companies do everything possible to deny fault in a tractor-trailer accident. Truck drivers may keep two sets of logs, one that is accurate and one that claims they have followed the rules regarding how long they should drive.

Our attorneys will review all of the evidence in your case, including the black box, which records a semi's speed and direction. We will inspect the truck's maintenance logs and work with accident reconstruction specialists to determine who is actually at fault.

We will consult with your doctors and other medical specialists to discover the long-term effects of your injuries so we can calculate the full cost over the rest of your life. Once we have the full picture, we will present this to the trucking company and its insurance carrier to open negotiations on your behalf. If they are unwilling to compensate you fully, we will take your case to court.

 

 

 

 

MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS

At Weaver Law Firm, experience has taught our attorneys that the catastrophic and long-term consequences of a motorcycle accident are often more intense than a car accident. Head traumas, spinal injuries and even fatalities are more common because there is little to no protection besides the helmet. Most motorists know their limits, but even the most experienced can crash. Many times the wreck is not the fault of the motorcycle driver, but the result of road hazards such as:

  • Construction zones

  • Distracted drivers

  • Vehicles failing to yield

 

If you’ve been the victim of a Georgia motorcycle accident, lawyer assistance is crucial to fight insurance companies for a fair settlement. Our attorneys work with you to assess the short and long term damage of your accident and negotiate a settlement that will protect your future. Contact our attorneys at Weaver Law Firm today to learn more about our services.

WORKERS COMPENSATION

In Georgia, you must have a physical injury to be eligible for workers compensation. If you have been hurt on the job you are entitled to medical treatment, physical therapy, medication, necessary travel expenses, or even temporary disability benefit if your doctor should dismiss you from work for the statutory amount of time. The time to file your case is limited and must be within one year from the date of the accident. If you have received medical treatment it is one year from the last time you received medical treatment paid for by the worker's compensation carrier and it is two years from the date you received a check for worker's compensation. Remember, you have only 30 days to report your injury to your employer. Call us today to let us help you navigate through this complicated system or if you should have any questions regarding your case.
